    I have both,the nite guards ,and the electric fence,,the electric fence around my coop and run,top and bottow,after two raccoon attacks,my garden is next to my coop,I haven,t saw a track of any kind in my garden since installing the nite guards,keep in mind that the nite guards don,t work in daytime,,but the electric fence does,,I feel that my hens are safer with both,,,no more raccoon attacks

    They are a waste of money. I've had owls kill chickens within a few feet of the lights.

    If you want to try this night guard at no cost. Put some little red christmas lights up around your coop. Same affect.

    Ok what about solar light with red film over them?
    Cheaper by far.

    i think they are cheaper at randall burkey, just like just about eveything else. i have catalogs from both places and just about everything is cheaper at randall burkey.

    also i think i'll try the christmas light trick..
